Gerard Butler Hospitalized After Motorcycle Accident in L.A.

Gerard Butler is thankfully doing okay after he was hospitalized for a motorcycle accident in Los Angeles this weekend.

The 47-year-old actor, whose new movie Geostorm hits theaters this Friday, was reportedly run off the road when a car cut him off, according to TMZ.

Someone who witnessed the accident called 911 and Gerry was taken to the hospital by paramedics. There were no broken bones and he was treated for cuts and bruises.

While he is banged up, Gerard will be able to do press for Geostorm this week. He is scheduled to be a guest on The Talk on Friday.

Make sure to always wear a helmet if you are on a motorcycle!

    I agee.I go way back myself when he first started out.

    That’s before me! Maybe you don’t hover over his career like I do, but he’s part of my life in some weird odd way I never imagined in ’05. He’s not a holodeck for me. Nor time waster.

  • Blastie ☠

    I think he gets nervous whenever he has to do the PR rounds. It’s palpable on the chat shows. I don’t think he’d do PR at all if he didn’t have to.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Lol….to confining…

  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Completely agree. Think it’s better now or harder as the years and industry challenges prevail? Think he has any fun at all?

  • Blastie ☠

    He takes so much time off these days, I think it’s harder and he hates it more than ever, lol. I think he enjoys the extra perks, like the private jet, etc.

  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Yeah, I know. Don’t get me started! lol But (to me) that only makes it harder but maybe more exciting too? I don’t think it’s the ‘high’ of before either. He could feel he has disappointed some (fans) by a couple of things as well as film work choices. I get a sense he wants everyone happy, including himself. Confirmed about the perks. Being the center of attention. The narcissist in him might like the reactions to the beard, hair, superficial things. He might lurk on sites later.

  • DorothyfromOz

    Either way, I had a friend who’s husband was in a motorcycle accident and now he is a paraplegic. The point is I hope he doesn’t turn to painkillers, they are deadly and will ruin his life.

  • Blastie ☠

    I have to admit this focus on his ‘near death’ antics, both past and present, is becoming annoying. It makes him look a bit bent. If they lied about this accident, I find that to be a despicable PR move, and whoever’s behind it needs firing (even it it’s Alan).

  • Blastie ☠

    He already had a run-in with painkillers. That’s what he supposedly went to rehab for.

  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I know. Living so reactivlely takes its toll (on me too ;). I had some musing comments up about the high drama earlier but took them down. My issue with his manager and possibly even Butler is credibility, trust. He’ll never fire Alan. Their ability to function apart would be impaired. They’ve created an altered reality. They’re so trauma bonded over secrets that they wish to stay together. Gerry may not be capable of trusting anyone else.

  • The Noise in The Walls

    I still don’t understand that…I mean…I know playing an American you need to have the accent but Sean Connery played all sorts of characters including a Spaniard in the Highlander and no one bats an eye..

  • 💕👰💫german-girl💃fresh-blood💫👰💕

    ….that`s PR:)!!!

  • LuvsDaBoy

    Because Sean Connery is an Icon. He plays variations of his own persona, not really character acting. People went to see Daniel Day Lewis ACT. They went to Connery’s film’s just to see Connery. And we are still a nation of many first-generation immigrants, and many dozens of ethnicities. It is wrong for HW to stereotype “American”. They’re just lazy, imo.

  • LuvsDaBoy

    It could not have been that long, as his hands were fine at the Pediatric Cancer Center. I believe whatever it was, happened Wednesday (10/10/17). Maybe someone will ask him on the red carpet tonight, so long as he is not with someone in a yellow dress.

  • The Noise in The Walls

    True..They should have other ethnicities

  • Pamela

    Out of curiousity…why would YOU be interested in anything I do? Are heading out to creep on me? Like you did before? I haven’t forgotten that you helped me lose a job before.

    I haven’t forgotten at all.

  • Maggie P.U.

    LMAO!!! In the previous thread….LDB said Gerry was in LA even though they were told several times he wasn’t. Well. Again. He wasn’t. Because he;s been in NYC til recently.

    Have you seen it?

    Ahhh sweet Maggie! Thanks! We love you this much too GB!

    The wreck? Oh you mean the crash, sorry I thought you were talking about Morganstein.

  • Blastie ☠

    Yellow dress?

    Seen Geo Storm in Geostorm?
    This weekend.

  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Private jet? Wow!
    Maybe he stayed around or was late posting?

  • Sonia

    I think he was in LA, on Sunday anyway. All the photos posted yesterday of the interviews (him in the light brown T-shirt) were taken in LA. The journalists either tagged LA locations or you can see they are LA-based. Also, his co-star Jim Sturgess posted a photo in LA yesterday, he was doing press too. Butler doesn’t always post photos that are current, remember how he posted those photos taken while on holiday in Asia months later etc. Also, his hair and beard in this photo are much longer, it looks like he had a trim in those photos from yesterday.

  • sassafrass

    You mean that time you got yourself fired over one of your twitter meltdowns? I haven’t forgotten either.

  • Speechless

    Me too. We will compare notes.

  • Pamela

    No, cause you called them. And trust me, things will turn out bad this time for you. The FBI has everything already. NO, actually it was because someone turned Morgan Brown in for having drugs around her son. If this goes as far it I think it will, depositions will be taken. And I hope you don’t lie under oath.

    Don’t you ever….EVER…..harass me again. Take my advice and fuck off.

    This time? Four years later…

    Will real-life natural disasters affect an incoming ‘Geostorm’?
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2017/10/16/real-life-natural-disasters-affect-incoming-geostorm/765764001/

    “Not only does the timing not hurt Geostorm, but it might make the film more relevant, says Erik Davis, managing editor at Fandango.com and Movies.com. “If the plot speaks to reality, that kind of thing actually makes people more interested in seeing it.”

    I believe this is what the director said in an interview too and I agreed with him in a post sometime ago.

  • sassafrass

    Exactly, and you’re still at it.

  • Pamela

    At what? Posting like you are doing? Trying to make something wrong with that? YOU were here long before I showed up. Do you really think you can make something wrong with that? Are you a crackhead? Are you the king of this world and we all have to have permission to be here but you, NO YOU can just do whatever, huh?

    Sweetheart you are nothing be a cockroach.

    People have wanted to see Butler in harder sex scenes than the bubble gum type he’s been in for years. It could be one of the reasons some lost interest. All that hotness wasted. Parts too predictable? Whose fault?

  • sassafrass

    Post, threat, repeat, get fired, post threats, repeat.

  • 😼HH😼

    NO, only YOU want to see him in hard sex scene. Since there has not been a massive outcry for this that means the public is okay with it. Looks like you will have to photoshop Gerry’s head onto porn models and get worked up to that. You truly are a disgusting individual. Naming your sex toys Jerry Butter?

  • Pamela

    Hack Hack hack, Post, hack, threat, post hack threat, post hack threat.

    Don’t forget someone was PRETENDING TO BE GERARD BUTLER as DEAN GREEN….and as Luke Green too.

    That’s what brought me here from the beginning. I have the screenshot of the account. Does it make you feel like a man to pretend to be another man?

    I s A v E d everything. That’s what makes me C R E D I B L E.

    Burns. Harder. Darker. Hotter. Sexier.
    What women have wanted from Butler.

  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    He should be banned from interviews with hot women. Lol

  • Maggie P.U.

    That couldve been last week. Because he was wrappin up things in NYC til recently. Whos to say those people posting via LA posted late?

  • Maggie P.U.

    Lol…..yeah right. Just like a hemroidal flare up….:)

  • Maggie P.U.

    ddddaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyuuuummmmm……lol…true though…Freight train…

  • sassafrass

    That’s what makes you crackers.

  • Sonia

    So about 8-10 people (including his co-stars) coincidentally posted about being in LA doing interviews with the Geostorm cast on the same day, within the space of a couple of hours, although it took place a week earlier, while Gerard Butler correctly posted about being in NYC? Right. Makes total sense.

  • Pamela

    Take your meds. Crackers? Nice.
